Giving Thanks: Can Food Save the Day?

Giving Thanks: Can Food Save the Day?

We love how food is more than just simple sustenance. When we think about food saving the day, we think about times when a special dish appeared just when it was needed most and lifted our spirits or those of someone we care about. Can you think of a time when food turned a horrible moment into a restoring one?

We love how food can be so comforting. Just the act of lifting the spoon and feeding ourselves helps us relax and makes our troubles seem a little further away.

Enjoying food with other people is even better. Cooking and eating lunch with a friend who is going through a hard time, making sure that a sick relative has enough food in the fridge, even just baking cookies for a grumpy loved one - these are the kind of acts that seem very small but end up meaning so much.

Can food save the day? We definitely think so! What about you?
